International Futures (IF)

Modern Diplomacy: Towards global domestic policy
International Futures is the first programme offered by Training for International Diplomats which is targeted both at diplomats and at young leaders with an international focus. This programme brings experts from governments and think tanks from Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa face-to-face with German diplomats and young leaders.

Together they spend an intensive two weeks exploring both the opportunities and the challenges for diplomacy in the age of globalisation whilst discussing the role of global governance in today’s world – beyond the boundaries of traditional foreign policy.


Responsibility in the world – responsibility for humanity

International Futures aims to promote the development of a global community of shared responsibility. Guided by four strategic themes – preparing for the future, geopolitics, global economic policy and peace policy – the programme provides an introduction to 21st-century diplomacy.

The fact that the seminars and workshops are planned and run jointly by academics and practitioners ensures a variety of perspectives and methods. Informative visits and practical modules as well as continuous support from the programme director, a former German ambassador, allow participants to jointly draw up strategies to resolve global challenges


Networks

INTERNATIONAL FUTURES, a two-week programme of the yearly four-month 'Managing Global Governance (MGG) Academy', is conducted by the Federal Foreign Office and the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP).
The MGG Academy is the training format of the Managing Global Governance (MGG) programme.
It is mainly funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE).
In this way it exemplifies how different ministries within the German government are jointly supporting global dialogue.
